with the united states. we are your number one exporter relation between colombia and the u.s. do you feel that the current administration is doing enough to encourage colombian trade? is there something more that can be done? what is your wish-list for your country related to the united states? >> but at least to have congress ratify the free-trade agreement with colombia, the free-trade agreement we negotiated and closed with the united states during the previous administration. liz: david has one more question. david, go ahead. david: it is related to the problems in mexico. as you know corruption is endemic in mexico. there is so much corruption that has gone on for so many decades in mexico. again a lot of businesses are reluctant to get in because of that. if you're going to clean up the drug problem in mexico as you did in colombia, you have to deal with corruption. particularly among the police who are supposed to go after the drug dealers, not work with the drug dealers. how do you deal with a corruption problem in a place like mexico? >> no, no. i can not speak about mexico. i ha

together since both the united states federal reserve and the bank of japan lored interest rate policy and put in additional stimulus in the global economy. last night silver and gold cracked, and there were a lot of people shaking their heads as to why the metals cracked, and there is perhaps talk out there there were large derivative positions out there that perhaps silver gets above $36 an ounce, you could see a large short covering trade. so be careful. but the fact that gold and silver cracked in this global, aggressive central bank easing campaign doesn't make sense either. david: no, no. of course, it was a crack. it may come back. john, we're going to be talking more to you when the s&p futures close in just about ten minutes. thank you, john. liz: thanks john. let's bring in maury, chief investment officer of relative value partners and david steinberg. both these gentlemen a lot of experience in the markets and a lot of money that they work with. david, you're a bit more optimistic right now, and as we look at the s&p 500 which is certainly up over the past year, pretty stron
the past two years the united states increased its production of crude oil and natural gas liquids by 1.3 million barrels a day. by the end of this year it may be two million barrels a day. that is on a base of five. david: that is enough to move the price in the market? >> that is i am men's. it can -- immense. it can move the price in the market. liz: meaning more energy jobs available. what are the numbers? the obama administration said 600, 700,000 jobs could be created. do you feel that is a ballpark figure? >> that the number for natural gas, 600,000 is for natural gas. oil is probably another two million jobs. combination of these two technologies can bring back more than a third of the jobs that were lost in the great recession. liz: but there would be training involved. just doesn't happen instantaneously, does it? >> no. it happens over time, over two, three, 4-year period. but if you look at the united states economy overall, for every 100, $115,000 of gdp we get one job in this country. for every million barrels of oil you import, you don't, you save, for five million barrel
that by hundreds of companies from the united states that is why unemployment stays frustratingly high. won't that eventually hurt corporate profits? >> there is a lot that can go wrong and the fed was trying to minimize the risks if things go wrong from here but if you don't believe in the government and you don't believe in the u.s. currency because they are throwing so much money at it and you don't believe in government that when you do want to own are shares in corporations because they are the strongest entities in the world with a global footprint, good balance sheets. in a sea of uncertainty and lower returns one of the things you want to learn is a share of a growing stream of earnings and dividend and speculate by low-quality stocks, there is a lot that can go on but you want return and you do have to own the higher-quality companies and the global footprint. you have to have some of your money in those. dave: there was one this sense that this vote. you think richard fisher, head of dallas fed where you used to work if he was a voting member as he used to be that he would be anot
plenty of reserve to do that. we are in a below average economy here in the united states. a slight recession in europe. slowing gdp growth in emerging economies. it is a tough environment. >> very tough indeed, thank you. liz: gel, we were check back with you in a few minutes we do the federal reserve announcing another round of money easing. peter barnes is sitting down exclusively with boston fed president eric rosencrantz. here is what he had to say about he thinks how it will affect the economy. >> i think it will have a material impact and they're a number of ways it can happen. one is in the housing market, rates are low, but we are starting to see in the markets that prices are starting to go up. if you think that the federal reserve program will last for a certain period of time, there is the same thing when purchasing a large building. interest rates may start rising as the economy improves. that is exactly the kind of behavior we are hoping for. liz: mark olson is a former federal reserve or governor. you heard what he said. a very important interview. he truly feels that
be a good way to spend some spare time. whenever you have the president of the united states selling your product, you can capitalize on it on all kind of ways. how have you capitalized on the president? i know the subway conductors are fun stuff but when you get the president that you can convert into money. >> you know, for us it was a big moment because it showed the value of it as an interview format. i personally would like to more politicians coming on. he wasn't the first. hope he is not the last. we extended invitation to presidential candidate romney. i would like to see every level of government. david: alexis, i have to press my point with you. how do you monotize getting the president on? for example, if you're a book writer, if you have the president holding your book saying that is a good book you can capitalize on that. how do you that from a website perspective. >> i may not be that good of an entrepreneur to figure that out. it obviously legitimatized red did and put it on. that monetizaton will come but i expect any photos of the president on reddit. liz: you could have
in the united states, and we think larger caps are the place to be. liz: where in the larger cap space? are there particular sectors you like? particular names? >> well, within the large cap, we believe in a broader based investment strategy, well diversified. a couple of sectors we like is health care and the other is real estate despite huge runups with home builders. we think that recovery is just at its infancy, and really won't peak out for another four or five years in the real estate market. a couple sectors we think have real legs to grow much higher. david: david, back to you. we have a credit crunch going on. the fed, both the fed and politicians, try to make sure we don't have the same kind of bubble in housing we did before. large companies can get around this in a way small companies can't going directly into the markets themselves. for that reason, would you prefer a large cap company over a small cap company right now? >> yes, absolutely. for the reasons you cite. number one, they do have access to credit. number two, they do have strong balance sheets, clean, and a lot
thing about british health care, it was messy awful hospital compared to any i've been to in the united states but they have 1/10 as many malpractice suits. because the loser pays. if you bring a frivolous lawsuit you have to pay. should we have the system here. >> i think so. we have number of corrections to make. wouldn't hurt the person who had the hurt if you will. might take a little bit, a few dollars out of the lawyers revenues from that but it's the right way to go. if you have courts which are professional courts that know what they're doing and sort out the questionable claims from the real claims that would be a big help. the other aspect just to say. david: sure. >> you both get reduction in premiums and get less defensive medicine which is extremely costly. david: a lot of these things are keeping a lot of doctors out of practice. some people are pulling in their shingles. they're leaving practice entirely. a lot of people who might have thought about many billioning doctors are not becoming doctors. we have a terrible shortage. look at this, $130,000 short by 2015. that is
